Appegios?

Nothing more than the notes of a chord played in sequence instead of all at once.

The strongest note you can play against a chord is another chord tone. Learning arpeggios helps you realize where the strong notes of the scale lie. It's also great for training your ear to hear notes like 9ths 11ths & 13ths. After awhile you will start to think chord to chord when soloing rather then key, and you can add color to your phrases by altering the 5ths (b5 #5) and 9ths (b9 #9) and 11ths (#11). Learning arpeggios does wonders for your sense of phrasing too.

welcome back to the theory posts Christoph, its been awhile since I seen your name posted here.

Good to be back. I've been battling educatedfilm over all this political crap for the longest time, and I just had to get out of there for a while.

Freddwe, arpeggios are seen mostly on the piano, but rock and jazz guitarists do a lot of sweeping (ask Skee1 about this. He's the expert on sweeping), which involves playing the notes of a chord in staccato succession across the strings.

Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Christhoph
I owe you one for that remark!haaa
Anyway i'm no expert on (Arpeggio's or Sweeping,
i consider my self a beginner because i,
learn something new every day even by doing the,
stuff i,ve done for years,i'm alwasy experimenting,
trying new things or another, oppoach to my old way's,
of doing things on guitar. (Also i can'nt spell worth a darn so you,guys need to check my spelling every once in,
while please?(I need help with typeing words also!
I learn alot from all you guys about spelling alot,
of words .(Thanks guys) I will say this i can play,
guitar plus talk with voice better that i can type,
or spell.............(But i'm learning from you guys!
About Arpeggio's in my mind when i play them,
I'm thinking Chord Shapes plus partial baring of 2 or,
more note's useing 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 finger's of my, left hand.Plus useing a Rolling off the notes technique,
plus useing Hammer-ons plus pull-offs sometimes.
I would say if your new to Arpeggio's and just starting,
out trying to do them, try to just use 3 notes of a triad=chord like an Am at the twelth fret this would,
also be a good way to try sweep picking,raking ect.
Mabee also try adding a note then useing 4 notes.ect
Also make sure you learn them by useing your index finger,
plus pinky finger to execute the first note or root note,
of the Arpeggio.
Another thing you can try is use a hammer-on on the root,
note=first note of the arppeggio.

Mark begginner i learn with you guys!
P:S Chrishoph<-selled wrong) once you get the Moderator position.
I'm going be asking you some spelling tips on how to,
spell opproach.ect(grin)
Another thing i had a bad day yesterday i put a trick,
or 2 on guitar-tricks and uploaded the wrong sound file,
for the trick but i'll get it fixed today.
Another thing Chrishoph see if you can get some,
kind of discount for me for something on here because,
of my age ok?
Peace all
